Before I look at what games made the list I will throw up a guess:

1. Lost Odyssey
2. Blue Dragon

(After 2 mins...) Shoot, Halo 3 was it. I would have guessed Eternal Sonata and Project Sylpheed too.

JsonHenry3496d ago

The ONLY reason that it is on the top 20 is because the PS3 has no games coming out anytime soon.

That and the fact even the loyal Japanese realize the Xbox360 is a better platform. : )

REbirth3495d ago (Edited 3495d ago )

the problem is...i could agree with you if there weren't no games in top of ps3...but there is ONLY 2 games of the xbox on top after 10...

against the 8 of ps3...4 of them in top5

even DMC4 is more expected than halo...

That and the fact only the loyal americans think the Xbox360 is a better platform

The list is for the "most wanted". Blue Dragon and Trusty bell already came out in Japan so its not listed.

Japanese people are crazy. How long can slaying dragons and looking at pictures of half naked cartoon CHILDREN amuse someone? Its amazing they all are not child molesters. Actually, its not, most of their population is very, well, non-attractive is the nice way to say it. Who cares what these people look forward to? Here is my top 20:

1: Elementary School Dress Up
2: Dragon Slayer
3: Journey through dark eternity
4: Segway racer XII
5: Godzilla 9000 XL Mellenium Edition
6: Sheppard Ninja
7: Rice Cooking Adventures
8: Tsunami surfer
9: Pokemon Snap 2 (AO version)
10: Bird Flu Adventure
11: World Of Naked Cartoons 2
12: Xio Xio vs Ming Ming
13: Ancients vs Scourge
14: Tekken 37
15: Final Fantasy LXVII
16: Samurai Assassin
17: Supa Street Raca drift
18: Revenge from the Cats: Dinner Fights Back
19: Kamikaze adventures
20: Bicycle Navigator

I Hope you all are excited as I am about the releases.

@Black - Dude, you're messed up. Have you seen their models? Way more beautiful than the white blond bimbo's from here in America. Not to mention their kids probably have an IQ that is twice yours.

lol youre kidding right? thats just 700 people that want the game out of millions lmao

TheMART3496d ago

Well...

Last week:

Ninja Gaiden Sigma for the PS3 was sold 46k in Japan
Eternal Sonata/Trusty Bell for the 360 sold 50k in Japan.

Only thing... the PS3 has twice the number of units out there. Things like this are huge in terms of likability of the 360 games in Japan. Obviously even Japanese buy 360 games in large quantities. If they show them enough to friends... Slowly the country will like the XBOX brand more and more. It's a slow process, but seeing these latest movements it looks hopefull

REbirth3495d ago (Edited 3495d ago )

yeah this time TheMART is right...but blue dragon sold the double (80,348) in the same time...and trusty bell is in 2nd with only 49,334 on top 10...with only 3k more than NGS (46k)...and it's a RPG...can it outsell ninja in the long run?

EDIT: TheMART...it's comments like that you should post more...that's one smart coment...be less xbox fanatic and ps hater;)

xfrgtr3495d ago (Edited 3495d ago )

TheMart,youre a joke,2000 xbox360 sold per week,muhahahahahahaha
Eternal Sonata/Trusty Bell are japanese game made for japanese,ninja gaiden is not a rpg game,you stupid,of course they gonna sold,but the thing is nobody buy xbox in Japan,hahahahaha!!!!!

TheMART3495d ago (Edited 3495d ago )

@ FX35

Wrong. Last week the 360 sold almost 8k, the PS3 sold about 9k

We all know XBOX isn't selling great -yet- in Japan. But so isn't the PS3, so what's your point exactly?

If we look worldwide, the 360 outsells the PS3 twice. How does that feel?

@ Zidandy (below)

pretty simple. They're all over the internet. VGChartz has many of those numbers one click away... Before used by PS fanboys to prove their PS3 did better then nexgenwars.com made it look, but now the PS3 really struggles, they don't want to hear numbers of their once beloved VGChartz anymore ;-)

Zidandy3495d ago

Where do you get all of these statistics from? I'm curious. Do you spend your days hunting for them, or do you just make them up on the spot?

REbirth3495d ago (Edited 3495d ago )

TheMART is right...i saw that too...after trusty bell came out...8k 360 were sold in japan while only 9k ps3... i don't have the link but i saw that in a site of games...

FreeMonk3495d ago

I glad for once that there is someone on this site that talks some sense, and TheMart, you are the guy!

I'm sure when games like MGS4 and FFVIII arrive on the PS3, it will sell bucket loads of systems, but until then the X360 and Wii have a lots of solid titles that are aimed at the Japanese audience.

I'm suprised though that Halo 3 is there at #20. Although I love Halo, and I'm a big fan, there is one game that I'm looking forward to more than Halo...and that game is Bioshock. It's a shame that this is not in the Famitsu top 20 wanted because Bioshock is going to be a solid game that even the PS3 fanboys would love on there system!

If Halo 3 barely scraped the list, and no Bioshock, I wonder what the anticipation for Killzone 2 is like in Japan??? Sony seem to be spending time and money on KZ2, but if it doesn't appeal to the Japanese audience, which FPS normally don't, then there sales may dwindle a little more.

tides are SLOWLY turning in the land of the rising sun!
Hey,at least they're turning.

EDIT:Right on Mart.

toughNAME3496d ago

then that was a great comment theMART
but wait till all the ps3 boyz get on your ass for some reason or another (roll eyes)

back to article..
i know this makes me sound like an american (hey im canadian!) but i really dont care what goes on in japan
not a narrow minded person but when it comes to games...meh

sony4life3496d ago (Edited 3495d ago )

WONY LAST LONG ON THIS LIST. THEY DONT REALLY DO FPS GAMES LIKE WE DO. I EXPECT LOST ODYSSEY TO CLIMB FURTHER UP THE LIST TO THE TOP 5 BEFORE ITS ALL SAID AND DONE BECAUSE ITS A RPG. A LA TRUSTY BELL.

@ FORDGTGUY THEY DONT DO FPS ITS A FACT. THATS WHY THE XBOX HAS SUCH A HARD TIME THERE. BECAUSE ALL OF THE GREAT GAMES ARE FPS IT LACKS RPGS AND PLATFORMERS IN WHICH BOTH ARE ON THE WAY.

FordGTGuy3496d ago (Edited 3495d ago )

and will only get higher on the list until it comes out.

@sony4life

That doesn't matter because it will only get higher on the list the longer it takes to come and so does every other game in their Top 20.

Xi3495d ago

for the last 3 months, slipping to 20th after big titles are released.
